CHeST strongly believes on collaborative effort to address Health System and Technology and related integration implementation questions by bringing together academic, community, clinical and policy expertise from across New Zealand and internationally. Our strengths lie in effective collaborations across research, policy and practice, allowing us to focus on the applied end of health policy and system improvement. CHeST works closely with district health boards (DHBs) and other organisations within New Zealand's health system, and has links with national and international research groups.
